The song was written by Larry Vincent (music) and Harry Pease (lyrics) in 1964...

Nope. According to the site of the Shapiro Bernstein group, which owns the song: THE FRENCH SONG was a hit in 1964 for songstress Lucille Starr, who also recorded with her husband Bob Regan as "The Canadian Sweethearts." The tune was based on the song, "When The Sun Says `Good-Night` To The Mountain."

The Australian National Library Catalog shows the original song copyright in Sydney by J. Albert & Son, 1937, and material at Shapiro Bernstein (which I now can't find) shows an original date of 1923.

The song is older than you realize!
